14x11in oil on canvas SOLD
This one was done back during the actual blossom time.
I have painted blossoms in this vase before...in fact I do
one every year because I love the combination.
It is larger than my typical daily painting so I did not
post it - it went straight to the Phillips Gallery here in Las Cruces.
A beautiful gallery and I feel so fortunate to
be in there. I rather liked the painting so
I was delighted to hear it had already sold.
Classes are finished for the summer and before
I take off for the month of July I am having some
extra shelving put in the classroom.
Quite a project. One of the members of the Guild
is a top-of-the-line carpenter and he offered his help.
First, he hung plastic sheeting to keep the dust
out of the gallery area.
It impressed the heck out of me, but then I remembered
he is also an artist and would think about that type of thing.
I moved my easel back
there too so I could carry on painting.
Saw horses were erected and wood cut to size
Here he is patching an area.
More to follow next week. Rich is off visiting his son
who is a Green Beret, for the weekend.
